The Boston Celtics are one of the most proud and storied histories in all of American Professional Sports. Out of the four major leagues in the United States, the only US-based team that has more championships than the Boston Celtics is the New York Yankees. But, on Sunday in game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals, the Boston Celtics played like quitters.

After two tough losses at home to start the series, the Boston Celtics needed to win game 3 to give themselves any real chance of moving on, as no team in NBA history has ever won a series down 3-0.

Instead, they didn’t show up, and they got absolutely hammered, 128-102, in a game that was not as close as the score indicated.

Bam Adebayo was more-or-less having a dunk contest out there.

And, plenty of people are bashing the effort of the Boston Celtics and calling them quitters.

Unless they come back and win this series somehow, the 2022-2023 Boston Celtics will always be known as quitters.

Game 4 is on Tuesday, back in Miami.
